Perfect! I’ll check it out. That’s a better price than anything LMC would have- they have good stuff but their shipping kills me as well.
I looked still $349 + shipping. Vinyl wrapped one. They only show 3 colors but dark blue is one of them.

I said the film was on the bezel, I meant to say the aluminum front bezel "trim".
I cleaned the (black) bezel, then sprayed it semi-gloss Rustoleum then clear.
I used a "Molotow Liquid Chrome" pen to carefully repaint the silver rings around the gauges and "Lights" letters.
Oh wow! I thought it was all new bezel not just the face. Very nice work restoring it!

Actually I used Harley Metal polish and did it by hand. Bought it a while back and liked it. Been using it for a while now…

My 81 diesel this week. Collecting engine parts from Rock Auto, Summit, and Mondello Performance to rebuild the 350 Olds diesel. She’s burning oil.
350 Olds diesel always reminds me of this article....

All new body mounts. Check out the old and new mounts and bolts. Glad I changed those original 1986 parts out!

Are those the Level 7 billet mounts? I've got a set I need to put on mine, just been procrastinating but mine are original too so I need to do it sooner than later lol

**Nevermind, I saw your post in the other thread about a 1" bodylift, looks good!

Finally got the window and regulator back in the 79. Just with a new motor for now, with everything lubed and the new motor it works really good. The coil spring on the regulator is pretty rough but it also hasn't been used in five years lol. The new side makes the old side seem really slow and rough, because it is. But it still works.

Im trying to keep this truck mostly the way it is for as long as I can, while slowly rebuilding it mechanically with time. I want it to be how my grandpa had it, before I need to get into paint and body in the distant future to deal with rust and dents.

The paint wear makes this truck a lot more special. Don't mind my dumb teenage mistakes, thinking I could just throw a speaker in the door panel. The panel is beyond saving, the texture is gone in a lot of spots, so I'm not too mad at myself.

Used it the other day to snatch up some groceries after filling it with gas.

I love that it is so easy to spot in a parking lot that is full...
